PITTSFORD — A severe two-vehicle crash occurred today at approximately 3:04 p.m. on US Route 7 in Pittsford, near Casella’s.
The incident involved a 2023 Freightliner tractor-trailer operated by Nathan A. Cohn, 33, of Ferrisburgh, and a 2010 Toyota Prius driven by Daniel J. Davidson, 44, of Rutland.
